East of Bil'in, An-Nabi Saleh residents also held a weekly demonstration, calling for an end to land confiscations by a growing Israeli settlement built on village lands.
Demonstrators reported difficulty accessing the village, facing new iron gates installed at the entrance to the area.
Protesters said Israeli soldiers met them with tear-gas canisters, rubber-coated bullets and pepper spray. One protester, Oday Abdul Hafith Tamimi, 20, was said to have been assaulted and detained by Israeli forces.
During the protest, soldiers entered the home of Abdul Wahhab Tamimi in what appeared to be an arrest raid targeting his son. Demonstrators refused entry to the force and a fight between the sides broke out, witnesses said.
An Israeli military spokesman said one man was detained for rock throwing, but said soldiers did not report using riot dispersal mechanisms in the area.
